Description

Heritage Debate 23rd October 2018: Diversifying heritage in the 21st century

Debate + Q&A 6.30 – 8.15pm

Reception 8.15pm – 9.30pm

Please join us for an evening of lively debate followed by drinks and a buffet reception in the Waldorf's beautiful Palm Court.

This years’ debate will be centred around the challenge ‘how do we get more diverse audiences to connect with heritage?’ Speakers will discuss class, disability, LGBTI+, BAME, women and youth in relation to the sector, exploring ways we can greater achieve better inclusion in terms of workforce diversity, public engagement and the narrative of collections/material culture and locations.

Participants will hopefully leave with a sense of the challenges the sector faces and the good practices we need to put in place to achieve greater diversity.
